I rebuilt my 1986 LR90 4 years ago. I dropped a 1997 300Tdi engine into it last year which has been a huge improvement. Returns anywhere between 26 and 29 mpg depending on how I drive it. My mileage is mainly urban type.
Took it to Val D'Isere a couple of years ago. Was surprisingly comfortable (but slow with the old naturally aspirated engine)… Read Full Review

This is a vehicle that will outlast any vehicle on the road, go anywhere and, I love it, it is a complete joy to drive. With the high seat position, a drive in the country is a totally different experience than driving your normal family saloon around, you can see far more. The 2.5 TDi engine is not one of the best that Landrover fitted to it's vehicles, this was one of the reasons that I replaced mine with a 200 TDi engine from a Discovery, a little more mpg, quieter and a bit more responsive… Read Full Review

I originally purchased the Land Rover Defender 90 for day to day use (on road), dog carrier,and for camping holidays.
It always feels like a large vehicle, however, is in fact smaller than the Volvo 440 hatch it replaced. It's noisy, could do with aircon, although the ventilation through front vents, & side sliding windows is excellent. Returns about 29MPG on a 2.5TDi. Surprisingly very comfortable on motorways as a cruiser. speed on motorway comfortable at about 70 mph, any faster became… Read Full Review

I love my Land Rover Defender 90 Station Wagon County. It is permanent 4 wheel drive so I don't need to worry about changing all the settings. I wouldn't suggest it as a city car because of the poor turning circle. if you love the feeling of power and saftey, but also want the looks of a classic 4x4 get this car!… Read Full Review
